'This, however, ignores one of the key stated purposes of pushing for the top-down, command-economy overhaul of the American health-care system: bending the cost curve downward. As Congress prepared to pass the ACA four years ago, Obama told the House Democratic Congress,“[E]very single good idea to bend the cost curve and start actually reducing health care costs are in this bill.” The need to reduce spending on health care drove the debate, both in terms of government and private spending.
The scope of the new spending doesn’t suggest that it’s limited to just the uninsured. Nor does it come as a function of economic growth. The annual rate of GDP growth for 2013 was just 1.9 percent, less than a third of the spending increase in 2014, and less than a fifth of the increase in 2014 Q1. If growth in health care spending was linked to economic growth, as CMS concluded in regard to the 2012 data, then something has caused a major disruption and delinking of that relationship – and the obvious change has been Obamacare.
Is this new health-care spending really just an expression of joy over new coverage, as Obamacare supporters argue now? Fortunately, we have some metrics to judge this claim after two full quarters of rapid increases in spending. Since the White House declared victory on Obamacare as open enrollment ended, and insisted that “the debate is over,” a number of national polls have been published on the new law and support for its provisions. Not a single one of them demonstrates a rise in support anywhere near the rise in spending – or much of an improvement at all in popular perception of Obamacare.

My God you are dumber than sh*t.

Reducing the costs of healthcare by bending the curve refers to reducing what it costs to administer the care. Not reduce the overall money spent by stopping people from getting the healthcare they need.

We are talking about ancient times...c. 600 CE. Isabel of France was only 7 years old when her engagement to Richard II of England was announced and that was in 1396 AD. There was no uproar. In fact, canon law at the time limited marriage to girls age seven and above. We have to keep in mind that the Middle East countries are centuries behind us in development and education. It is obvious that you could still benefit from a little education yourself.

Brig. Gen. Lovell is the former deputy director for intelligence at Africa Command and a member of the military who was at Africa Command during the time of the Benghazi attack.
Wouldn't matter where he was stationed, would it?
Brig. Gen. Lovell testified in front of a House Oversight Committee that the military should have and could have done more to help Americans who were killed in Benghazi.
Your empty insults only prove to make you look like you're out of the loop.
Gen Lovell retreated from that statement during his responses to the questions of Gerry Connally__Lovell did the ole quickstep backstep. By the way doll it's AFRICOM.

The state department nor the CIA are a part of the US military babe.

Sure keep repeating that bull crap and citing right wing sources like the Manchester Union Leader as if their opinions amount to facts.
Fact: When the housing market hyper inflated it was Republicans who controlled both houses of Congress and the White House.
Fact: No one was forced to make subprime loans. Unregulated mortgage brokers like Countrywide and Indy Mac did it so that they could sell them off at a profit before they went bad.
Fact: it was the Republicans who refused to regulate the markets in mortgage backed securities and credit default swaps.
Fact: You're an idiot!
Hi there Thread Dummy!

Aren't you that moron that said Sweden was doing "just fine" when they were having their 5th day of riots?

To further illustrate what an idiot you are:

"If Sweden were a US State, it would be the poorest state in the union"

"Swedes, usually perceived in Europe as a comfortable, middle class lot, are poorer than African Americans, the most economically deprived group in the United States, a Swedish study showed on Saturday. "

"Using fixed prices and purchasing power parity adjusted data, the median household income in Sweden at the end of the 1990s was the equivalent of $26,800 compared with a median of $39,400 for U.S. households, HUI's study showed. "

You are an idiot!

You are FOS. Have you spoken to any doctors about what they think of ObammyCare?

The UCA is going to raise the costs across the board and provide worse care for everyone. Even the medical journals are pointing out patient care was an afterthought.

"No, don't!" she cried urgently but she'd been through this a thousand times already and she knew none of the neighbors would interfere with the workings of another southern family, so she did the only thing she could and reached back and pulled her cheeks apart so he could more easily access his goal...
Three long vicious strokes and she could feel him start the inexorable process of unloading himself into her and she groaned involuntarily as he exploded inside of her tiny frame... She wondered idly if all men came so easily? But there was no time for reflection as he suddenly spun her round, pushed her to her knees, and forced her head onto his still spouting man-stalk... She shrugged and began the process of cleaning him up before her mom, brother, and sister returned from the free concert at the green gazebo in the park...

That is what the article is discussing that the bending of the curve is going the opposite direction since Obamacare.

First time I've heard this. The generals on the ground didn't seem to know it either apparently. They were perplexed as to why they weren't given any orders to go in and rescue that embassy and those men.
Obama's accelerated drone war demolishes homes and kills innocents on a regular basis.
Here is Carol's "generals on the ground" post.

And once again:

Ambassador Stevens worked for the state department

Sean Smith worked for the state department

Glen Doherty was employed by the CIA's global response force and based in Tripoli

Ty Woods was a CIA contractor stationed in Benghazi

None were military__non reported to AFRICOM.

There was not a single US military airplane in Libya nor any US military vehicles.

A group can reference a study in their findings. It does not mean it is not based on peer reviewed science.

That is just a plain silly comment. Liberals are extremely intolerant of opposing viewpoints. Try to discuss traditional marriage, try to be a black person opposing Obama's policies, try to be a Christian, and the wrath of the intolerant progressives comes pouring down.

You have already displayed your intolerance this morning.

Discussing total spending like in your post is not talking about lowering the costs of healthcare.

Obviously if more people seek healthcare & especially considering those who just now have coverage, then total money spent will rise.

It would be idiotic to think a general would be in Benghazi. That is stretching logic.
